Backpack Probs

Today i was going about 140 on 45 north and i guess the wind at that speed is strong enough to rip the backpack zipper apart from each other or i just have a jansport backpack. Anyways my homework and papers all inside went flying anyone else have this problem?

140mph on 45 north freeway.

Everyone knows backpacks have a 130mph limit there.

You just didn't tuck hard enough... Next time set up a gopro and film yourself Both how you are tucking vs what your field of view looks like..

That way we can all judge you on how well you can put your nuts to a tank.

For me, I don't really worry until about 185-190 indicated..but by then I have to hit the exit anyway.

Say how fast can you do the 610 loop?

Swiss Army backpack all the way. They are invincible. There is a reason everyone in event production lives out of them. I wish they made saddlebags too.

I almost had the same problem.
Use a paperclip and clip the ends together. Voila!

Had this happen to me but nothing came flying out. Was going to Austin had a camal bak on pulled over to get gas and noticed the zipper opening up. I decided to invest in this bag http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/i...uad-3-backpack

Have not had a problem yet.

Can't say I've ever been 140 seeing as my bike isn't even capable of doing those speeds.. The fastest I've been with my backpack on was cruising at 95-100 on I-10 after San Antonio and that was JUST keeping up with traffic. Back to the point--No my backpack has never flown open.

Maybe the backback is fine, and 140 is the problem. Just a thought.

Somebody start a petition to raise the I-45 speed limit to 145mph.

I rarely make it down to 145mph, I usually do clover leafs at 165-175 and the open free way upwards of 200mph. The key is the engine, I have a turbo charged 'Busa with a heavily modified internals and can achieve full spool at 12 mph. It has chrome line pistons and cylinders, 380 duration cams but the real key of getting 1000hp out of a bike is the fuel. You have to run highly refined orphan tears, which can get expensive. Then you wonder about the grip, the key there is using unicorn farts to inflate your tires to 56psi. I have taken my jam sport up to 350mph, are you using fairy dust to help your wind resistance? I bet that's your problem, I have some extra if you need some.

I picked up some at Ross for $25 bucks which had the waist strap. Just make sure you put your zippers on the side and not on the top to prevent air from coming in the gap.

I've gone 145 in Mexico with that backpack and no issues.
